  • So we went to Rathausmarkt Square (Rathausmarkt, Rathausplatz, Town Hall Square or market) - this is one of the attractions and heart of Hamburg. The jewel in the neo-Renaissance style here is the City Hall. On the corner of the building stands a magnificent metal model of Altstadt. The appearance of the Town Hall Square was created in the middle of the 19th century, and the global reconstruction was initiated after the great fire of 1842. The architectural plan was based on the Piazza San Marco in Venice. Here on Rathausmarkt you can see a sad monument to Heinrich Heine. After going for a walk and looking at all this surrounding beauty, we sat down at a table under the vault of a rectangular, green, glass gallery "Rathausmarkt Arkaden" that stretches parallel to the building of the Town Hall. Ordered in Express-Buffet "Hanse Cult Currywurst" beer, fried sausage with rolls and continued to enjoy the views. U-Bahn Rathaus station is located nearby.

  • What a beautiful square! The Rathaus itself is a piece of art, so magnificient. The square lively and wonderful, with people coming and go, or just hanging around.  more »
